Why do some people act like kids when they’re on the road? Is that because having an expensive car of some sort provides the license to be an arrogant driver?
Vast majority of accidents happening everyday are all attributed to vehicular accidents–either because of cell phone use while driving, intoxication or driving under the influence of drugs, and serious driving errors.
Road traffic casualties in the UK alone for January 2010 are already close to 200,000 with 2,000 resulting to death. It’s not just those inexperienced drivers that get involved most of the time, veteran drivers get themselves involved as well with most traffic violations because they believe that they know more and can get away with anything at any cost.
In this regard, efforts have been duly focused on keeping the road safe. While most countries all over the world are doing the same, in the UK, “ AXA Car Insurance” has been working closely with the authorities in keeping the red flags down and through its newest campaign entitled “ AXA Respect On The Road”, a more responsive citizenry is expected as they highlight the state of disrespectful or even worse, dangerous driving practices in the country.
They have even taken this campaign on to the streets of London in a black taxi which they have called the “Cab Cam” which gathers the opinions of the public about the issue through video commentaries. See sample video below about it.
They also went social with the creation of a Facebook fan page found via this link.
Having these kinds of efforts would not succeed without the help of a large citizenry, thus, most of the time; it serves as a reminder which these good guys hope that people wouldn’t have deaf ears at.
Discipline always comes from within. If you’re a driver and you’re reading this, complete this statement. “I respect the road by…?”
Keep your answer to yourself and watch the video below. Aren’t the kids cute? What if they’re adults’ acting like kids? Are they still good to see?
